Places in Time: A must have for the Michael Gettel fan...

"I am surprised that no one has reviewed this particular CD. Places in Time was the second CD that I purchased of Michael Gettel's (The first was The Key, which I promptly purchased after hearing a sample of it on Art Good's Jazz Tracks show back in 1995). Although I have never met Michael nor had the chance to see him in concert (did he ever tour?), his music has touched my soul and I own all of his CDs.
Places in Time is really unique - at least it is to me - because it takes me through a musical journey that somehow connects with memories of my own. Just try to lie still and be unmoved by the Storyteller Sleeps! There's not a bad track on this CD. Each one sounds inspired and original, and Winter's Twilight is (arguably) his best song ever.
I have listened to this CD while traveling to or staying at my most precious and memorable get-away locations. Each time I hear it, even years later, I reconnect to those memories all over again and it takes me to my own Places in Time."
